Ghislaine Maxwell was reportedly hiding out in a secret bolthole advertised as offering “total privacy” before her arrest.
The four-bedroom, four-bathroom timber frame £860,000 home, which boasts 156 acres, was purchased for cash last December in Bradford, New Hampshire.
Following the British socialite’s arrest government prosecutors said her home had been paid for entirely in cash and had 156-acres of land.
It was sold on December 13 last year.
They did not identify it by address.
Although refusing to detail how they found Maxwell, Bill Sweeney, the FBI assistant director-in-charge in New York, said she had “slithered away to a gorgeous property to New Hampshire” before being caught.
The “stunning” 4,365 sq ft house is described as being a “custom designed timber frame home is an amazing retreat for the nature lover who also wants total privacy.”
When advertised, prospective buyers were told: “From every room, there are views of the Mount Sunapee foothills to the west.
“From the covered front porch, enter the great room with a floor to ceiling fieldstone fireplace, cathedral ceiling, and a spectacular chandelier, a wall of glass frames a stunning southwestern view beyond the stone patio.
“The materials and craftsmanship are the finest.”
The house is 90 minutes from Boston and four hours to New York.
Over the past four years Maxwell has changed her phone number to one registered under the name ‘G Max’, MailOnline reported.
She also had her parcels delivered under a different name and was associated or owned at least fifteen different bank accounts, prosecutors said.
She reportedly has French, British and American passports.
The six-count indictment against Maxwell in Manhattan federal court alleges she helped Jeffrey Epstein groom girls as young as 14 years old, going back as far as 1994.
She faces up to 35 years in prison if convicted.
In a Grand Jury indictment unsealed this afternoon it is alleged that Maxwell “contributed to Jeffrey Epstein’s abuse of minor girls by, among other things, helping Epstein to recruit, groom and ultimately abuse victims known to Maxwell and Epstein to be under the age of 16.
“The victims were as young as 14 years old when they were groomed and abused by Maxwell and Epstein”.
The indictment also accuses Maxwell of lying “in relation to some of the minor victims” when under oath in 2016.
Epstein, who pleaded not guilty, killed himself in his Manhattan jail cell in August last year.
Some of Epstein’s alleged victims have said Maxwell lured them into his circle, where they were sexually abused by him and powerful friends.
